Since February, we (Kelsey, Celena, Ellen, and Peter) have been working with SF-based non-profit YCore on a long-term social impact project and would love your support. YCore enables young professionals like us to use our experience, knowledge and network to make long-term systemic impact in our local communities. While donating to local non-profits is very important, many of these organizations need skill-based assistance with longer term projects like policy analysis, strategy research and outreach programs. YCore helps to connect young professionals with projects such as these.
Our team in particular is working with Nuestra Casa, an organization that provides community education, leadership development, and advocacy to uplift families in East Palo Alto and the mid-peninsula. Our project is to work with Nuestra Casa to develop an environmental justice policy analysis framework, which will be used by Nuestra Casa on a long term basis to anticipate and influence new policies that affect their constituents. We aim for the project to be used as an educational resource to improve policy literacy and accountability in the future.
But we need your help. We are each raising $1,500 to support the YCore organization and the projects it provides its non-profit partners. All donations are tax-deductible and can be made online here. We appreciate your support in helping us complete this project and in supporting future YCore projects.
